Spoked rims, 18-inch at the front and 17-inch at the rear, are shod with chunky Pirelli MT60 rubber which accentuates the look of the ‘Aviator Grey’ machine.

Perhaps the whole ‘Land of Joy’ line that Ducati use to market the Scrambler line-up globally sounds great in Italian, but it certainly doesn’t translate well to Australian….

The Nightshift model effectively combines the attributes of the Full Throttle and Cafe Racer variants of the Scrambler that will no longer be available in 2021.  Nightshift will sell alongside updated Desert Sled and Icon models with the 2021 Scrambler range due to arrive at some point in the first half of 2021.  Nightshift will be priced at $18,000 Ride Away.
